Important information missing! How much olive oil? Not in the ingredient list, nor in the recipe! What do I do with the bacon and drippings? Leave in the skillet to burn with the shrimp? Add it sometime later? I played it by ear and got it done. Used sun-dried tomatoes, which added some nice tasty oil to th emix. It was a very pretty dish and just what I had hoped for, just frustrated by pieces missing in the posted recipe.
Just okay. Didn't use the Italian seasoning at all, as is my preference. However you tweak this, as you are bound to do, by all means don't cook the shrimp for ten minutes. A few minutes, until pink and opaque, is what you're after.
Instead of tomatoe sauce I used a light white sauce. It was fantastic! Great recipe; everyone loved it.
Great recipe! If you want to "skinny" it down, it's very good without the bacon (just use olive oil to cook the onion/garlic).
Excellent recipe. I did take a little creative license in adding fresh diced tomatoes in addition to the canned, also added some fresh sliced mushrooms and sliced black olives. The recipe as is, is excellent and I love that it leaves room for inspiration while cooking (yes, I taste as I go along and rarely stick "exactly" to any recipe). Thank you for the great dish.
Excellent! The only change I made was that I used cheese stuffed tortellini instead of plain pasta, but I know it would be great either way.
I made this as described, and added a dash of cayenne pepper and some red pepper flakes to give it a kick. I also used the leftover shrimp I grilled last night... just let it heat through so it wouldn't dry out. My husband loved it.
Excellent recipe! Beautiful, simple, smells great when family is coming home for dinner. Even my vegetable-phobic 10 year old ate without one complaint, and that's really a compliment!
